BRATTLEBORO, VT -- Six new exhibits reflecting a wide range of artistic styles, mediums, and concerns open at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) on Saturday, March 17. From hand-cranked kinetic sculptures made of household objects to elegant black-and-white watercolor landscapes, the new exhibits affirm BMAC's commitment to exhibiting contemporary art in all its forms. An opening reception for BMAC members and the exhibiting artists will take place at 11 a.m. The exhibits will open to the general public at 1 p.m.
"3D Color" consists of painted aluminum sculptures by New York-based artist Gloria Garfinkel. Viewers are invited to reconfigure the sculptures by flipping panels and twisting colored discs. "I find intriguing the concept that a finished painting is complete, done, frozen in time, never to be changed," says Garfinkel. "I want you to see how it feels to change a piece of art and feel the excitement of experimentation."
The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center presents rotating exhibits of contemporary art, complemented by lectures, artist talks, film screenings, and other public programs. Located in historic Union Station in downtown Brattleboro, at the intersection of Main Street and Routes 119 and 142, the museum is wheelchair accessible.
